In a series of tweets, the PPP chairman said, “We will challenge this rigging at every forum. The truth can’t be hidden. We will expose this selection. We will have a re-election and take back this seat.”As per preliminary results from 138 polling stations that were set up for the by-election, Abbasi bagged 31,557 votes, while his rival Jamil Soomro of the PPP obtained 26,021 votes.Our candidate wasn’t even allowed inside polling stations. We kept asking ECP to intervene but its malafide intent was apparent in its silence.Despite all this political engineering PPP has reduced the GDA/JUIF/PTI+👽 lead by 5,000 votes in less than a year. 4/5 #PS11— BilawalBhuttoZardari (@BBhuttoZardari) October 17, 2019 Following the voting process yesterday, Bilawal had said in a post shared on Twitter that: “We will challenge this rigging at every forum.

From pre-poll with NAB arresting & sending notices to PPP workers & their families”. On polling day, Rangers took over the inside of polling stations. harassed our women voters, threw out our polling agents, and deliberately slowed polling.
